Wow, I also worked for Mr Farmer and COrpus Christi Theatres..
I was neat just showing your previous week's pay stub and get in free to movies. I worked at the Gulf Drive inn, snck bar.
We would jump on the bus and make the rounds during the day, but usually limited to the Ayers.
Remember the Jimmy Bell Show on Wed at the Centre Theater?

No, I'm referring to a bowling lanes bldg that's on kostoryz (I think). It's nothing compared to the Buc Bowl either.

No, it's not that one. I believe that was Gulf Skating Rink when I was growing up in the 70s/80s. This newer bowling lanes is either on kostoryz or ayers

wehotex,
Perhaps you are thinking of Saratoga Lanes on Ayers near Saratoga.
There used to be an Ayers Bowling Lanes on Tarlton/Ayers near the Ayers Theatre and HEB Swimming Pool.
Also on Flour Bluff Road near SPID, the now furniture store was originally a Bowling Lanes in 1983 or so, one of my mentors was a partner in that endeavor that went belly up after a couple of years.

Funny, but several years ago we had a Medical Staff meeting at Spohn Shoreline. Dr BB Grossman received a plaque for his long service to that hospital. He was "everyone's" friend, but a fellow physician asked him"Do you have any enemies,Dr BB?".
He quickly retorted : "No... I've outlived them all!". Of course all of us clapped and gave the o'ol Doc a standing ovation! He, Marvin and Saul were a great bunch of Doctors !!

Yes, Angelo's between Carroll Lane and Brawner Pkwy was owned by the Sciantrelli Family. Two of them attended Corpus Christi Academy with me in the early to mid 60's.
